The Alehounds to open 2016 Twilight Concert Series


The Alehounds
NEW HAVEN - The Alehounds will open the 2016 Twilight Concert Series at the Pardee-Morris House at 7 p.m. June 29, according to a release.

The free outdoor concert is being presented by the New Haven Museum, which owns and operates the historic site, the release said.. The on-site food-trucks for the evening will be Frank Andrews Wood-Fired Pizza and The Cannoli Truck. (rain date June 30)
 
"The Alehounds are a guitar, banjo, fiddle band that plays traditional Irish folk and Americana with just a hint of rock and roll," the release noted. "The band consists of Sean Conlon on guitar, harmonica, vocals; Chops MacConnie on mandolin ad vocals; Mike Ryan on percussion; Colleen Filush on fiddle and  vocals, and Charlie Stevens on banjo. With their musical influences ranging from the Dubliners to the Clancy Brothers, and from Bob Dylan to The Pogues, the New Haven group plays many a rollicking standard."
